    Like Tarnish said -- using portions of another artist's work to create your own work and/or comment upon the original is a process as old as time. Negativland, Andy Warhol and Ludacris have more in common than a single glance would suggest.




Sorry to veer slightly off topic here, but I have been wondering this for a long time:

In the song "Move Bitch" by Ludacris, does he credit Danny Elfman for the sample, or did he change it enough so he didn't have to? I'm pretty sure that song he's rapping over is right out of "Pee Wee's Big Adventure", where Pee Wee is having a nightmare about his bike.

I KNEW I had heard that somewhere before...and no, no credit to Elfman

Highway robbery! To think Ludacris is out geting patted on the back for coming up with that track when in fact he's ripping off my man Elfman and not even slipping him any money! I guess this kind of thing happens fairly regularly?

Maybe he paid him (or whoever actually owns it) for the sample but didnt have to credit them for some reason? Anybody know if that's possible?




This is just GREAT
Take a picture, write it down.

I'm sure it's possible that some artists have under the table deals like that ("Don't sue me for using this, wink wink, put another floor on your house with the money in this briefcase"), but if that's the case here, Elfman had to think the song would be a bust, cause this song is going to collect beaucoups of royalties over the next few years. I have a feeling it may be the latest "Who let the Dogs Out" for football stadiums everywhere...minus the 'bitch' part of course.

Good to see the Queens getting some lovin'. That new album ("Lullabies to Paralyze") definitely deserves more attention than it's gotten.
